    Yes, and it's embarrassing, and your car won't start.

    It might be worth a shot taking the remote apart, and reinstalling the old battery in a different orientation, might give you enough juice to make it work until you drive to the dealership or Best Buy. Worked for me.

    Could you pull the fuse for the security system after unlocking it or disconnect the battery for a short duration?

    I think that would convince the car that someone really is trying to steal it.

    What happens if you unlock the door using they key and then place they key in the ignition, switching between on and off three times? Or is that another car I'm thinking of?

    I don't know if the alarm is significantly different in '06s but if I the alarm goes off in my '09 all I have to do is turn the ignition on. The chip in the key senses everything is alright and the alarm shuts off.

    Exactly. I've had to do this a few times. I over use the keyfob and have gone through several batteries.
